Located in the Old Engine House on the edge of York's Museum Gardens in a riverside setting close to the historic Lendal Bridge, The Star Inn The City has an enviable position, which we aim to match with the best produce God's Own Country has to offer and genuine Yorkshire hospitality for the 'whole package'.

We offer an all day menu which can be enjoyed for both lunch and dinner, as well as serving up breakfast Friday to Sunday, and on Sunday's we serve up our famous Sunday roasts between 12-4pm.

We pride ourselves on being a a food-led celebration destination, with guests being able to enjoy view of the River Ouse from our Garden Room or outside on our riverside terrace. For more intimate occasions we also offer two exclusive Private Dining rooms for celebrations such as graduations, weddings and birthdays.

    Very disappointing visit! We booked to eat on Father’s Day . On arrival there was only a Sunday menu option available which is dramatically reduced from the main menu. We struggled to choose a starter so omitted this option. Main course choice was mainly roasts, my son wanted and steak, and I fish- we both ended up having to choose a roast. Our roast cauliflower cheese had added hair in the dish. Plenty of desserts to choose, my husband chose lemon drizzle with blueberry ice cream. When it arrived at the table it looked so uninspiring. A slab of cake with a scoop of ice cream.. not my idea of a £10 dessert. Coupled with rushed service we were literally in the building for 1 hour, 10 minutes which didn’t feel like a leasurely lunch for the occasion. No longer our restaurant of choice !

    It’s a lovely restaurant, service has improved since the last time we went but it’s overpriced, there are so many excellent restaurants in York that are much better value.

    This is a place to celebrate any occasion; a birthday, anniversary, the fact that it’s Tuesday! This was a birthday and we had a late breakfast. As ever the staff were brilliant, the food was fabulous and the ambiance lovely. I thought it was particularly impressive that the staff appeared to have arranged a 21 gun salute in the museum gardens, presumably for my son’s birthday (although I think it may actually been for the king!) Lovely occasion and will always recommend the star without reservation.

    The food was expertly prepared. Properly cooked, presented and seasoned. Very enjoyable! We had hoped for a river view but inside - only a glimpse. We probably misunderstood the river front location comments.
